Scosche switchBACK surge g4 for the iPhone 4
Accessories for the iPhone range has long been a money making machine for many companies, especially with third party manufacturers, and this is one trend that does not look like it is going to stop anytime soon. The iPhone 4, with millions of owners, is certainly a cash cow that deserved to be milked for all it is worth. After all, plenty of people like to accessorize their iPhone 4 to make sure it is different from others that are in the market.
Scosche knows this, and has brought around the switchBACK surge g4 to the masses, where it will function not only as a backup battery, but also a kickstand case for the iPhone 4. With an integrated kickstand and an internal 1800mAh lithium-ion battery, the surge g4 is able to juice up a dead iPhone 4 up to 80% full, making it one of the more useful cases around to have especially when you tend to use power intensive applications such as FaceTime and watching videos.
Scosche will be throwing in a free reVIVE app that is capable of providing detailed battery information for you to know just how much juice your device has left, making sure you will be able to sniff out a power outlet nearby before it is too late, and your phone “dies” right before you are able to receive that business call you’ve been waiting for your whole life.
A quartet of blue LED lights will let you know just how much battery life left the surge has, while the microUSB cable makes it a snap to recharge and synchronize the iPhone 4 even with the case on. Just to get an idea on how much additional power the case offers, you will get another 275 hours of standby, up to 12 hours of talk time, up to 36 hours of audio, up to 9 hours of Wi-Fi, or up to 9 hours of video.
The Scosche switchBACK surge g4 ships with a couple of interchangeable polycarbonate backs (Gloss Black & Metallic Silver), and will play nice with not only the AT&T iPhone 4, but the Verizon iPhone 4 model as well – now how about that? $79.99’s the asking price for this.
